                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team VISIONS V2 was 
unseated this week as MAN OR BEAST? moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-0-0 record for the round.  HOUSE BEAUTIFUL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested M. CHARDINEE and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  Although MOTHER GHEA NEWS made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious SAMUEL COLT.  Informants "close" to the 
city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in ZUWAYZA these days is VISIONS V2.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of MAN OR BEAST? last week.  Busy avoiding VISIONS V2?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I must report the passing of HEALTH DIGEST, veteran of many duels.  
8-11-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  Many 
townsmen have begin to remark over the fact that after one more round of duels THE 
MOTHERSHIP CC's Bloodfeud against TREME will have expired.  Dark alleys may hide both 
secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep 
vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ZUWAYZA as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Our congratulations to Samuel Colt. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags

Treme -- Well, OKAY, but remember that it was YOU who set your "victory prize" as the
redecoration of a room in your guildhouse.  Don't blame ME if your teammates don't
like what I will do to the common room. -- House Beautiful

The Venomous Concubine is ecologically unsound. -- Mother Ghea News

Zyane -- You're just doing this to annoy me, aren't you?  With that elaborate
headgear, or maybe it's a hairdo?  Either way, I can't see your bumps.  How can I
deal with you if I can't see your bumps? -- Modern Phrenology

The Fratsfa Slave has the most APPALLING taste in foods!  It made me feel sick just
to look at him. -- Health Digest

Lannier -- You just don't know when to quit with the weird stuff, do you?  Your bride
will probably never speak to you again. -- Everybride
